Love this show, love this comic, sooo happy to be able to finally get it in TPB!

Pros:
Ryan North is a perfect fit for Adventure Time!
Story kept as canon as possible!
TPB = no ads!
Cover gallery for the huge number of alternate covers, many by popular indie artists!
Includes Free Comic Book Day story (idk about you but when I made to my my local comic shop for FCBD they had already given out all of the adventure time books)

Cons:
B-side stories by different writers/artists not included (ryan north posted that they would be collected in a different trade at a later date, I was unable to get anything from boom to confirm this though) :c

I am very pleased with this purchase. This volume includes the first 4 comics in the series. It is way more colorful and art driven then I was expecting. The pages look and feel more like a high quality magazine then a comic. This is a perfect purchase for people who like the show, or to introduce young readers to comics.

The comics reprinted in this trade paperback are great and will be enjoyed by people of all ages. Some fans will be disappointed to find that the back-up stories are not reprinted in this edition, but their their exclusion makes the story arc more accessible to casual readers. This is a pretty good trade paperback overall, but I'd personally recommend the "Mathematical Edition" to more hardcore fans of the series.

Adventure Time Vol. 1 collects the first four issues of the series and includes a cover gallery.

My 10yo son and 8yo daughter love this book. They read it themselves, and out loud to their 6yo brother & 3yo sister. These are fun reading books. My wife isn't fond of the whole Adv. Time. but they are very excited and play with the toys and read the books all the time. Their mind is energized as they play make believe and use the stuffed characters to make all sorts of scenarios for hours on end.

I was surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. The show's sense of humor is well represented, the artwork resembled the show enough while having it's own style, and the colors really popped. The variant covers in the back were beautiful. This contains a single story arc that takes place over four issues, and has a legitimate ending. So while im left wanting more, it doesn't come with that awful lack of closure most comics rely on to get you to buy more.

I don't buy single floppy comics, so I was unaware that the indie comic artist short are not collected here, that's why I'm not giving it four stars. I do intend to get the collected shorts, but I would have preferred they all be printed in this trade instead.

Yes. Yes yes yes. Yesssss!!! It's Adventure Time, but in graphic novel form If you don't eat this up then you probably weren't into the premise to start with. It is all about friendship, being goofy, and full of soul. It's colorful, bubbly, light-hearted, with a touch of amazing. Buy it now. Right now.

I LOVE the little notes that the writers leave in the margin. Would buy again just for that. The story itself is as lovely and charming as you would expect for adventure time. The print quality is spectacular and the images are stellar. I so badly want to frame some pages.
